How We Met

Mackie came into my life when I needed him most. I had just spent almost 4 years with a horse that was all wrong for me. Mackie was such a willing partner, he made having a horse such a treat. He tried to please no matter what you asked of him. Knowing what I know now, I realize that life was really tough for Mackie. He had many health issues, everything from mild colic to choke, to allergic reaction to a vaccine and then a reaction to the antibiotic. His biggest challenge was getting and surviving EPM not once but twice. As a result of the EPM meds he developed gastric ulcers, it just went on and on. Thru all of this Mackie never once complained. It looked like we were finally on our way to enjoying ourselves, when his behavior changed, nothing drastic, just a little off. After a consultation with our Vet, an appointment was made at the University Equine Hospital for Mackie to see a cardiologist. The night before our appointment I told Mackie that we were going to get some answers, in my heart I knew it was not good, but I had hope because after all, these people were specialists. It was a very long day, filled with tons of tests and information overload. When all the info had been gathered, we sat down and they explained to me that he was in heart failure, only one of his four heart valves was functioning. They felt that this condition had been present for years, they said for me not to beat myself up, it was NOT something that either Dr. Cook or I had missed. Typically horses don't show symptoms because they keep trying, they said Mackie never gave up, his heart did.. His prognosis was poor to hopeless, I had 3 options, 1. leave him at the hospital and treat, however, they told me that they did not recommend treatment, even if it did help, it would be short lived. 2. take him home to die, but it would not be a peaceful death. 3. I could let him go now. I choose to let him go, I stayed with him, at his side the whole time, it was important to me that my face and my voice be the last he saw and heard. I held him and told him how much he was loved, I came home alone that day. He was only 12. I donated his body to the University Hospital, I got great comfort from knowing that his heart might help someone else's horse. I miss him everyday. Love you Mackie. We will meet again.

I took Sadie's temperature twice. 98.5. I gave her 2 Pepto Bismol tablets. She ate them like candy and wanted more. Yuck. Thankful that she's doing better. Lots of love and a vote.

Sadie's had diarrhea since Saturday. She's eating good and drinking her water. No change in her diet. I'm thinking maybe it's because the weather's been weird. Any ideas? Thanks. Love and a vote.

Not the first time that Sadie's turned on the water. I'm sure it won't be the last time, either. If she thinks about it, she'll do it, again. The only way to keep her from it is to keep her put up. I let her out to get some exercise. She's too sociable to stay in the corral all the time. She amuses me. Love and a it's raining vote.

Let Sadie out to stretch her legs and get some exercise. She turned on the hose and made herself a lake to play in. She loved it and blew bubbles while wading in it. Brat! She's too dang smart. Oh well, I don't have to water that tree, now. Lol. Lots of love and a vote.

I turned on the sprinkler for Sadie, Monday. She backed that big butt up to it, then laid down and rolled. Scruffy always gets happy when he sees her do that. He ran up to her behind, barking. He ran away from her when she let out a loud fart. Still laughing. Wish I had a video of it. Leaving lots of love and a vote.

Check out profile #280567
Hey guys please check out profile #280567, this young lady wants a horse soooo bad. she put up 3 profiles of dream horses and took a fair bit of flack over not admitting they were dream horses. I have chatted with her a bit and she actually admitted that they are dream horses, she is in 4H and has posted a profile of the 4H horse, she just loves him and would like so much to be HOTD. If you have a minute please give her another shot at it. I think most of us can relate to being a horse crazy young girl...lol Talk soon, Love Donna Lee

So thankful for Sadie's shade. She is, too. I've got a small wall on the west side, about 6 feet wide. Going to wall up the north side when the the weather cools down. Don't know if Sadie uses the wall to block the blowing sand. She uses the shade when the sun is hot and when it rains. Plays in her water trough to cool down. The fly mask protects her eyes from flies and blowing dust and sand. She's use to the weather, no matter how crazy it gets. Leaving lots of love and a vote.

Monsoon season. Large dust storm hit the Phoenix area, yesterday. Horrible winds were slamming into the house around noon, shaking it. Thanking Jesus for not losing power. Tucson was flooded from the heavy rains. I had to work a short shift, last night. Hard rain hit here before I got home, and flooded the highway below my house. And yes, it's miserably humid, now, but thankful for the rain. Also, thankful for Sadie's larger corral. The east end flooded, but the west was good. Sadie's good, too. Horses are rugged animals. They can survive so much worse. All she seemed to care about was food. I let her out, waded through puddles to the hay shed, and gave her a flake of hay. She had her carrots and apples, too. Her new salt brick melted. Need to buy 2 at a time, just in case. Love and a muggy vote. <3
